The Actors Fund’s Annual Gala will be held April 29 at the New York Marriott Marquis, 1535 Broadway.
Four members of the entertainment industry will be presented with The Actors Fund's Medal of Honor: Tony-winning playwright and actor Harvey Fierstein; Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony-winning actor Rita Moreno; International President of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and international labor leader and community advocate Matthew D. Loeb; and Chairman & CEO of the John Gore Organization and Tony-winning producer John Gore.
The evening will begin at 6 PM with cocktails, followed by dinner at 7 PM and a tribute. Performers will be announced at a later date.
“Harvey, John, Matthew and Rita are legends in our community,” said Actors Fund Chairman Brian Stokes Mitchell in a statement. “They are rightfully due this highest honor from The Actors Fund, both for their dedication to performing arts and entertainment and for the leadership they provide in guiding the way for the next generation of artists and arts workers.”
